Six agonizing months after a slug collapsed his lung, Sergeant Justin Harrison manages to return to the one place where he shines—the San Diego homicide division. Nothing will stand in the way of proving he is fit for active duty. Especially not the long-legged brunette who just stumbled into his crime scene.
Photographer Paige Conroy spent years hiding from her past. Then a late night telephone call brings it crashing back. An old friend is in town and needs her help. When she arrives at his hotel room four hours later, he's dead. Suddenly, she's the target of a madman, and Paige must turn to Sergeant Harrison for protection.
But who is the bigger threat to her... the faceless assailant she fears will steal her life or the dark-eyed detective she knows could steal her heart?
Paige Conroy finds herself where she swore she’d never again venture, involved with a cop. Sergeant Justin Harrison, recently back to work from being a victim of a violent crime himself, swears to protect Paige from an unknown assailant. But how will he protect his heart, a heart that has long proclaimed that love doesn’t exist?
Ms. Grimm takes readers on an amazing journey, a trip where her wonderful talents as a storyteller bring the tale to life. Her plot/story line is a wonderful who-done-it, a story that could be read in any of today’s headlines. She makes the story uniquely her own with her amazing cast of characters. Her hero Justin and heroine Paige are unforgettable and wonderfully word-crafted by this talented author. The cast of supporting characters are also incredibly memorable and constantly add depth to the story. She brings to life her story with incredibly flowing dialogue and keeps her readers always reaching for the next page and the next clue to the puzzle. The love story is tender, sweet and heart wrenching as we watch two people fall under each other’s spell. The love scenes are very spicy but filled with tenderness and extremely sensual.
Get ready for the ride of your life as Sarah Grimm takes us on an adventure, an adventure of danger an adventure of suspense, but be prepared, this adventure isn’t for the faint of heart. If you, like me, enjoy fast paced, nail biting, page turning, edge of your seat suspense, then by all means get on board and try Not Without Risk.
